Asherwoman thrust Urbino into the heart of a strange and sinister mystery leading the inuisitive author down a twisting perilous trail that winds toward almost certain doom among the disinterred dead on the Isle of Bon. A fairly middle of the road kind of mystery What makes it interesting is the settings the characters and what the major character reads impacts the storyline It made me look up books that I didn t know and featured my all time favorite historical romantic book Consuelo by George Sand Consuelo translated in English My favorite book from my Uni days I stayed up nights to read this Link to the Project Gutenberg text This is Venice music opera in the 18e century We get Porpora Haydn haunted castles in Bohemia romantic but a little crazy Bohemian count Vienna Prague Berlin Sand did extensive research for this romantic saga and she wrote it at amazing speed having to deliver a piece of the story a week for her then lover s paper Consuelo was first published as a serial with very little rewrites It consumed Sand for months and then after it was all done she rarely went back to it even to correct typos and such It is her masterpiece and yet not something she looked back on very often I liked Death in a Serene enough to get the second one in the series
